Of Darkness and Light (Shadow of the Nephilim) byLily Crussell

Elora’s parents were never really the parenting type and are rarely home. Elora is old enough to stay alone and isn’t really bothered by this, until she starts feeling like she isn’t quite alone. Then she swears she is being followed and she feels like someone is there, but can’t see anyone. This unseen thing starts attacking her and a stranger saves her. She starts to believe she is hallucinating all of this until this stranger that saved her introduces himself and then the attacks escalate. You see, this stranger is an angel who has waited ages for her to be born, believing he is destine to love and be with her. But someone doesn’t want them together. They will stop at nothing to see them apart and the angels destroyed, including kidnapping angels. Has Elora lost her angel forever? Can she just go about life acting like they never met and she doesn’t know angels exist? What lengths will she go to to save him? Would she dare to trust the angel’s enemy satan and implore his help?
I loved this story and can’t wait to see what happens in book two. Lily puts a new spin on the angel romance genre and brings freshness to it. As much as I hate cliffhangers at the end of a book, that is what keeps the readers interested, wanting more, and coming back to the series. Lily doesn’t disappoint in this area, something bigger and worse is coming in book two. The only thing I did not like was the fact of “satan” portrayed as not the same as the “devil” and not such a bad guy. But that is just because of my religious beliefs, which is the same or close to same as Elora’s best friend’s beliefs.
